Summertime--Original Miniature American Landscape Oil Painting

This painting is one of a series I completed this past summer. The others were all much larger paintings, so this 5x7 inch painting is a little bit different just because of its size. What inspired the series was the brilliance of summer folliage and the warmth of the fields. As I painted, I imagined the comfort a summer breeze and the warmth of summer sunshine. As we enter into the fall season, days such as the one depicted in this painting are a gentle memory. The largest painting of this series was 24x30 inches. Detailed thumbnails of this miniature painting can be viewed in my Etsy gallery.
